Background
  • Valhalla provides a completely free and unique twist for Final Fantasy XI. Originally joining the scene in 2012, we have utilized the DarkStar Project to forge our ideas of a Vana'diel that everyone can enjoy without the hassle of subscription fees. We believe in creating a safe, positive, and entertaining environment with regular improvement from player suggestions. The server is built with some custom modifications to the retail settings to allow progression through the game in both solo and party play styles. Our veteran team works out of their spare time and capital to host and maintain the server without requiring any donations. Join us in our journey to reminisce in the best that the game has to offer.

Differences in Mob & Player Related Configurations:
  • * Valhalla adds a new FFXI experience while maintaining the retail aspects. Lots of content that acts as an aside or an alternative to what a player will normally do to progress through.
    * The level ceiling is 90. This includes old-school Lv 75 mechanics, with more spells, job abilities, job traits (dual wield, triple attack, TH3 in some cases), improved solo play, brand new items/weapons/armor, adventuring fellows (similar to Trust), new areas to explore (some you may have never seen), and more.
    * Effort required will reward you with some pretty badass character configurations and that sense of accomplishment we all love.
    * Players can take advantage of the Perk NPC System. Custom features (additional traits/job abilities, augments, etc.) are meant for assistance and customization of your character. This will be expanded over time.
    * It is possible to get an Adventuring Fellow that you can control through pet commands. It has working battle animations but does not weapon skill at this time.

    Setting & Description
    NM HP values = Retail Values.
    Mob HP values = Retail Values.
    NM Mob Stats = Retail Values.

    * Realize that some mobs are naturally resistant to certain types of attacks. This is part of the default game.
    * Always make sure to use the /check system. If it says the mob is "impossible to gauge" then bring a friend or two.
    * If you really want to solo a certain NM, it is probably possible to do, but it depends on too many factors to list.
    * The hardest mobs you'll encounter very-late game and are manageable in a small party. Exceptionally Hard NMs (ENMs) which were added to retail, Have been introduced as content for Groups/End-game linkshells.
    * If you need any help, you can always ask the community in-game or post in the Looking For Group section on our Forums.

Really cool server, haven't played this game in 5 years. Very nice people, who helped me with all the new content. The signet boost and custom food make leveling a breeze solo, and a huge blast in a party :D

It's a small but nice community with very helpful players.
The custom food, with the bonus effect from Signet, also helps a great deal with the leveling process.

And thank God for that +3 DMG augment, now you can feel powerfull even at lower levels. >.>;
